The writing has been on the wall since April, but the Buccaneers have made it official and benched their former 2009 first round pick Josh Freeman. In favor of their 2013 third round pick Mike Glennon. It seemed like this was bound to happen sooner or later with the selection of Glennon in the 2013 draft. There’s been rumors that head coach Greg Schiano and Josh Freeman haven’t seen eye to eye and this is the move that broke the camels back. Freeman was viewed as a franchise quarterback just last year when he passed for 4,065 yards and had 27 tds. Now things have changed and he’s now a backup to a rookie quarterback. According to reports Freeman will request a trade out of Tampa Bay. Glennon had a 16-10 record in his two years starting at North Carolina State. Now he’s expected to become the starting quarterback for the 0-3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I think it wasn’t meant for Freeman to succeed this year. He had Glennon looking over his shoulder, and on top of that he had issues with the head coach Greg Schiano. It doesn’t help that Freeman has been bad in his first three games of the year passing for just 571 yards with a passing rating of 59.8. I think Schiano is trying to save his job, because he knows he’s on the hot seat in only his second year in Tampa. There’s been reports about players not buying into him as well so that makes matters worse. If I was the GM of the Jacksonville Jaguars or Minnesota Vikings I would give the Bucs a call to discuss a trade for Freeman, but that’s just me.
